Barton Bros. Body looks like tiger striped maple. Plating is engraved "Barton Brothers Sheffield, Utile dulci, Patent Brace." A handful of these braces have surfaced; Ken Roberts' research indicated that Barton worked in Sheffield in the 1850s, but the nature of the patent is unclear. "Utile dulci" means that the design combines the useful with the pleasurable. The head has several chips around the edge and a large crack and the brass medallion is worn but the body is very clean. A very uncommon brace. Good 200-400 **All bids must be placed by end of day Friday, October 30, 2020.

William Marples Ultimatum. Very rare example of the Ultimatum brace with solid ivory fill and head. Metal parts originally plated but worn. Sliding ring type chuck, Hibernia Works medallion. Since the head is ivory, the ring is ebony. There are a few tight cracks in the ivory but overall it is very clean and white. A handful of ivory Ultimatums are known, usually intended as presentation pieces. See Eaton, page 161, for an example. An extraordinarily rare and attractive Ultimatum, from the Roger Phillips collection. Fine 5000-10000 **All bids must be placed by end of day Friday, October 30, 2020.

Alford Hand Vise. This gizmo is basically a hand vise that can also be chucked into a brace and serve as a drill or washer cutter. It was sold by Millers Falls, and is described in MF catalogs as an "Alford Vise" but the identity of Alford is a mystery. This one is in nice condition, with a good rosewood handle and the nickel 98%, has a full complement of tools in the hollow handle.
